Stevenage:

Tom King: 7 - The talented Millwall loanee faced former Lions keeper Tom Forde as both shotstoppers performed well in a match which started at a hectic tempo but faded.

Joe Martin: 6 - Solid but will be disappointed at the goals conceded and looked sluggish at times

Jack King: 7 - The tough number four is being managed through the week in order to play on a Saturday. Seems to be working as he put in another honest shift but you do wonder if his legs are going

Fraser Franks: 7 - The big defender is the uncompromising as ever as witnessed by his no-nonsense but honest challenges throughout the game. Probably been biding his time feasting on raw meat served since his last start for the Boro in early February against Accrington Stanley.

Luke Wilkinson: 7 - Always dependable and alert to the threat of danger. Performed well clearing second balls in and around his box but another who will be frustrated at conceding two goals

Alex Revell: 7 - The experienced forward is not given the credit he deserves for the subtlety of his play which includes an effective ability to chest the ball efficiently. But he also offers far more as well as a wise head. As witnessed by his cooling Newton’s fury at the officials early on with subtle body language.

Ben Kennedy: 7 – Good to have the talented Northern Irishman back in the starting XI. A dead leg forced him to sit next to this Comet correspondent during the Mansfield game - and while it was great to see him kick every ball in solidarity with his team-mates he is a real asset to the team when he is on the pitch.

Luke Amos: 7 - Growing in confidence with every game. He is learning how to ally talent with a physical presence and a work ethic off the ball which was again shown as his tracking back has improved no end. It will be interesting to chart his progress next term. It is just a shame it won’t be with the Boro.

Danny Newton: 7 - Works so hard almost to the point of fury but not as effective as he would have liked

Matt Godden: 7 - This talented forward still appears to have his running hampered by muscular niggles, as witnessed by his less than fruitful attempts to push the ball past Harrison Dunk. Honest as the day is long a good break will do him the world of good for a fit and refreshed Godden is a real threat for defenders.

Ronnie Henry: 7 – Gave his all. As always.

Substitutes:

Chris Whelpdale: 5 – on for Kennedy

John Goddard: 6 – on for Godden

Dale Gorman on for King
